    Abstract

    Microvascular function and oxygen consumption affect oxygen homeostasis but have not been assessed in African children with malaria. Microvascular function in Tanzanian children with severe malaria (SM) or uncomplicated malaria were 39% and 72%, respectively, of controls (P < .001). Uncomplicated malaria (P = .04), not SM (P = .06), children had increased oxygen consumption compared with controls.
